This is not a surprise. J-Street markets themselves as a pro-Israel Jewish organization. On the contrary, J-Street is an anti-Israel and anti-Semitic hate group. However, they may have reached a new low when they invited the terrorist and Holocaust denier Mahmoud Abbas to address their conference. J-Street will also be honoring former President Jimmy Carter at this event. A man who has spent the last decades smearing Israel as an apartheid state. The other speakers attending this event include some of the worst anti-Israel bigots in the United States.
The rise of J-Street represents an enormous failure of AIPAC and other pro-Israel Jewish organizations. Many of America’s leading Jewish organizations refuse to confront the Left, out of fear of being ostracized from the Democrat Party. This has resulted in the ascension of radical anti-Israel hate groups such as J-Street, Jewish Voice for Peace, IfNotNow, and others.
Shame on former Israeli PM (and convicted felon) Ehud Olmert for agreeing to attend this anti-Israel conference. What a low-life.

J Street, a liberal Jewish Middle East policy group, is spearheading a bid to keep Biden to his promise of restoring US relations with the Palestinians.
By Jerusalem Post, April 17, 2021
Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas will deliver a prerecorded address to J Street’s annual conference, a signal of the determination among progressives to place the Palestinian issue at the forefront of US policy,
Abbas will thank President Joe Biden for resuming assistance to the Palestinians cut off by President Donald Trump, according to The Times of Israel, which first reported Abbas’ plans, as well as criticize what he will say are Israeli obstructions to peace, including settlement expansion.J Street, a liberal Jewish Middle East policy group, is spearheading a bid to keep Biden to his promise of restoring US relations with the Palestinians, and to advance from there to the resuscitation of Israeli-Palestinian peace talks.There have been reports that Biden, while eager to roll back Trump’s marginalization of the Palestinians, is not enthusiastic about returning to the Obama-era focus on getting to a peace deal unless the initiative comes organically from the Israelis and Palestinians. Foreign policy progressives, led by J Street, are determined to keep Israeli-Palestinian peace an administration initiative.The J Street conference, which will be held virtually Sunday and Monday, will feature leaders of Israeli parties advocating for Palestinian engagement and top progressive Democrats in Congress. Also, senior administration officials, including UN Ambassador Linda Thomas-Greenfield and Cedric Richmond, the top Biden official directing outreach to minority and special-interest groups.The conference also will feature an award for former President Jimmy Carter, a sharp critic of Israel’s Palestinian policies. J Street confirmed this week that it was backing a bill in Congress that would seek oversight to ensure that Israel is not spending US assistance on detaining Palestinian minors, destroying Palestinian homes or annexing territory.Secretary of State Antony Blinken said this week that the Biden administration is committed to expanding the Abraham Accords, the Trump-brokered normalization agreements last year between Israel and four Arab states. The Huffington Post reported this week that Rep. Michael McCaul, the senior Republican in the US House of Representatives, told AIPAC last week that the Trump administration had a policy of marginalizing the Palestinians.
